<club-desc-paragraph>Mikki Kendall's Hood Feminism is an in-depth look at the Feminist movement and how it does (and mostly doesn't) support women of color and other marginalized groups of women. Mikki's book takes a critical look at how the movement was built around increasing the privilege of the few and asks readers to evaluate how we really talk about Feminism and the issues it should cover. Mikki takes you deeper into what inspired the book and what issues Feminists should be focusing on through detailed research and by sharing her own Feminist upbringing. Hood Feminism will challenge how you think about the movement that began with white women's suffrage and is still evolving to this day.<club-desc-paragraph>
